British Boy Band One Direction is coming to Nickelodeon!
Get ready for the teenage screams for a new British invasion- One Direction is coming Stateside to a TV near you!
Technically speaking, the British-Irish boy band One Direction, or 1D as they’re called, were the third place finishers for last year’s British X-Factor. Their mentor on the show was Simon Cowell and just like his U.S. prodige Rachel Crow has found herself a TV deal on Nickelodeon, so has 1D. The deal was confirmed on twitter by Nickelodeon.
The five-piece boy band includes heartthrobs in the making Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. 1D is best known for their hit single “What Makes You Beautiful” and their debut album “Up All Night” is set to break billboard records this week- knocking Adele and Bruce Springsteen off the top spot and in doing so becoming the first UK act to land at Number One for a debut album. Yes, even The Beatles didn’t do that!
